    Aye, I agree, there'll be a more kid-friendly switch. But i suspect it'll be more like a nabi than a vita. The important bits of the switch should still function as a switch, just in a different form factor. It'll be interesting to see what they come up with.

    the HAT-001 it's a switch you can wear like a hat.

    If we see a stripped-down Switch this early on, that'd be pretty neat. Something durable would be nice, I fell on mine and the left joycon can come off without the button being pressed. I can just buy a new set of them to fix that, but eh.

    ..If they actually make a Switch hat though I'm buying.

    It's literally the easiest thing to do and requires next to no R&D to put together. The only thing holding it back is concerns it will eat into normal Switch sales.

    Jesus... people think a hardware revision is a whole new unit. It's mostly just other hardware inside. Like cheaper chips, or better screen etc. PS4 Pro got 2 revisions that I know off. It's nothing new.... It's like some 3DSes got a TN and IPS screen and some got TN and TN. Some got IPS and IPS. It's just different revisions. It's not as clear on the 3DS. Wii had plenty of them.

    I don't know why. I just assume any revision involves a fix, or like you said, cheaper/better hardware.

    I think it's very reasonable since Nintendo has contracts with Nvidia for a few years and Nvidia has the new tegra chip coming soon...

    Maybe in 2 years we will have a improved switch at hardware level, but I think they will keep doing small improvements before having more hardware power...

    While I think that 2 years is too soon, I think there’s a good chance that Nintendo will stick with the basic architecture for a long while like they used PPC/Radeon for so long. It would be easy to build a more powerful successor 5 years down the line using newer Tegra that maintain compatibility with current Switch games.

    In that bara manga ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    I'm hoping for some type of expansion pack for the dock/handheld USB-C port that safely overclocks it

    For whatever reason people really want Nintendo to fuck everything up by releasing a "New Switch," but there's no indication that will be happening. There's no more miniaturized version of the TX1 in existence, and Nvidia's focus seems set on everything else except miniaturizing/advancing the Tegra line right now. At best we'll see minor changes to joycons or the kickstand or something. 2021 at the very earliest for Switch 2 with TX2. First the interest in the 1000 series cards has to die down some, they're all being bought up by crypto.

    Expect Nintendo to treat Switch like a home console, but one that they can't make any smaller like Wii (that was a pointless revision anyway).

    Smaller!? The thing is already just slightly bigger than your average mid-range smartphone.

    And yet, it does need to be smeller if Nintendo want it to replace the 3DS in the younger market in Japan. No parent in Japan is going to buy their kid a Switch.

    I knew this would happen, a unpatchable any fw boot Exploit ? Nintendo was obviously going to release new hardware to fix it since Switch is so early in its life
